Geotechnical and geoenvironmental

Cundall's specialist geotechnical  engineers bring together technical expertise in the disciplines of environmental science, environmental engineering, engineering geology, foundation engineering and geotechnics.

We provide geotechnical and geoenvironmental consultancy services to our international clients and throughout the UK, where our services have been used by a number of local authorities and government organisations, private developers, house builders, housing associations, PFI projects, universities and city academies, major civil engineering contractors and financial service institutions, as well as large industrial clients.

Through targeted site investigation and risk assessments, working in conjunction with the project teams, we can deliver an integrated ground engineering strategy for the scheme. We can identify and advise project teams on the key issues to the development of a scheme through a risk-based integrated engineering strategy by balancing between the requirements of foundation design, earthworks design and environmental regulations.

By developing a practical and realistic strategy, acceptable to certification and regulatory bodies, with the optimum earthworks strategy and Eurocode 7 compliant geotechnical investigation and design, the scheme can be completed at reduced cost within the client's programme, as well as in a sustainable manner, making best use of ground resources.

Our geotechnical engineers are actively involved in the industry and are authors of many technical papers on various aspects of geotechnical engineering in the UK, and international journals and conferences.

We provide a comprehensive range of specialist geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering services, from feasibility/desk studies, through site investigations and geotechnical design, specification and, procurement, to advice during construction and preparation of verification reports.
